The Murals at Chain Bridge Honey Farm near Berwick upon Tweed

I can’t believe that it’s taken more than five years of living in Berwick upon Tweed to get around to visiting Chain Bridge Honey Farm which lies around three miles outside the town, easily accessible from the A1. I did try to visit one weekend in low season but it’s only open on weekdays from November until March. What I liked most about the Honey Farm were the murals of local scenes adorning the walls.

One of murals, which takes up a whole wall, depicts the River Tweed from it’s source in the Leadhills in Dumfries and Galloway, in the south west of Scotland, to the estuary in Berwick upon Tweed, in north east England, where the river flows into the North Sea.

In the grounds, there’s a cafe in a green double decker bus along with several other vintage vehicles.
